Hi Gary. The interior is excellant (blue) with
very minimal wear on drivers seat,no tears or loose seams just a few cracks. I just put new 225/60
15 high performance tires on it (200 miles). I dont
Know if the timing chain has been replaced but it
runs and drives excellant with no noises.The brakes have been replaced. I dont want to sell it but it
has become necessary. I still have a 1987 420 sel
which I intend to put back on the road soon (bent valves). I wil try to post more pictures tommorow.
Thanks Jonathon. I put those trim rings on a month ago ,but there is no rust on this car,it has been in Georgia since new. As far as the timing chain goes,have you ever rolled a new chain on without
taking off the front cover. Chuck.
I just purchased my 1991 560sel here in Memphis for $7000, garaged, perfect interior, near perfect paint, no known mechanical issues. I am about to do a timing chain replacement on it (140,000mi) because I do not see on the records that it has been done, do you have any tips or reccomendations? I also may know someone who would be interested in your vehicle.
Hi Iwas told by jonathon (jhodg5ck) that the chain could be rolled on without removing the front cover.
Sounds like he is very knowledgeable and helpful on
You can email me if interested in my car at [email protected] Thanks.
A talented MB mechanic can determine whether your timing chain has been replaced recently. Invest money in an inspection by an experienced tech and you may save some dollars. jhodg5ck and others will likely confirm this course of action. Just because you don't have a receipt for the service doesn't mean it wasn't performed in a timely manner.
